Hi,
Is there any way to compile libvirt with xen some support without  
depending on libxenstore?
The reason I ask is that libxen can be built on Windows, but libxenstore  
seems to depend on the linux kernel, so I doubt it can be built for 
Windows.
    

  Honnestly I don't think anybody ever tried. The only drivers usually
compiled on Win32 are remote and possibly test. Basically so far we expected
libvirt on Windows to be only a way to access libvirtd remotely. But
patches to improve/extend this are as usual welcome !
  
Well, I have tried in the past, and I think I actually got libvirt 0.4.4 to build with MinGW/MSYS on Windows, but unfortunately only static libraries.
Bet back then only libxen was needed, not libxenstore.
Shouldn't it - in theory - be possible to build a libvirt for Windows without the need for a remote libvirtd?
What made me optimistical was the possibility to build libxen and the fact that Qemu also runs on Windows.
